Caprese Chicken Roll Ups
Looking for a new way to enjoy caprese salad? Try these Caprese Chicken Roll Ups! You get all the fun of a caprese salad stuffed into chicken breast!
So I’m pretty much on a vegetarian kick right now but I still do like to eat meat. I think I had meat overload when we were in the Keys, though. I ate two hamburgers last week. TWO. I usually only eat red meat maybe two times a month.
This week I’m eating mostly vegetarian dishes and maybe a couple of chicken dishes. The chicken dish I am sharing with you today would be perfect in my meal plan. Although, I would have to leave out the cheese since I am now going (mostly) dairy free. I made this recipe before I went dairy free so I was able to enjoy it with the cheese. And if you eat dairy, you can too! But if you don’t, just add more tomatoes, basil and maybe some spinach or red pepper. Those would be wonderful additions.
The idea for this Caprese Chicken Roll Ups recipe came to me one night while I was eating dinner. I was eating a caprese salad. Surprise. I wonder what could have caused me to think of this idea for dinner? My idea worked out pretty well. Not only did I have all of the ingredients on hand, it was easy to make and it tasted delicious. I hope you enjoy this recipe!
